We present a novel framework for calculating high-resolution spectra of 3D exoplanet atmospheres. To this end, we feed the outputs of a non-grey global circulation model into a Monte-Carlo radiative transfer code. Our simulations demonstrate that 3D effects (i.e. spatial variations in temperature, chemistry and dynamics) cannot be neglected when ...
